Granola--Fat Free Ovo

I like my granola to be kind of chunky, but it's tough to get the
right consistency without oil.  Well I think I found the solution: egg

They make the ingredience stick nicely together, but still bake up
crunchy, without too much sugar and no oil.

6 cups rolled oats
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
1/3 cup unrefined sweetner (honey/molassas/maple/sorgum/etc)
3 egg whites
1 cup dried fruit, chopped
300? Oven

In large bowl mix oats, cinnamon and ginger.  In separate bowl, mix
sugar and egg whites until combined.  Add to oats and mix.  Loosely
pat into large non- stick cookie sheet at bake at 300? for 30-40
minutes, stirring after 20 minutes.  This mixture tends to get very
dark, so adjust time to your taste.  When done, let granola cool
before adding fruit.  Store in airtight container.  This has about 15%
of it's caleries from fat, do strickly to the oats themselves.  If you
mix in rolled wheat, rye, or other rolled grains, it may lighten it up
even more.  Serve with non-fat milk or yogurt.
